Henry Rollins: Why I Do More Press Than Anyone I've Ever Met (LA Weekly)
I do my best, no matter how many times I have been asked the same question, to think it through and respond as if I have never been asked it before. I am not there to waste the interviewer's time. Now and then, the interviewer is overworked, underprepared or merely uninterested, and I basically have to interview myself. You can tell they're phoning it in when they read your press release back to you as questions. "So, you were in a band. What was that like?"

Henry Rollins - "A Lot of Americans are Mad" ABC Australian Tv Interview September 1 2016 (YouTube)
Henry clearly lets Australian's know how "he" feels on the "Gay Marriage" debate he sees here at the moment and other changes over the years that he's been visiting here in the thirty eight visits he's had to Australia since the early 80's in Black Flag, which doesn't get a mention here unfortunately.

Daniel Politi: Presidential Race Tightens as Clinton's Edge Continues to Slip (Slate)
Hillary Clinton continues to hold a considerable advantage in the presidential race, but her chances of winning are not as large as they once were. An analysis of polling data by Reuters/Ipsos shows the candidates running "nearly even" in the Electoral College count now that Donald Trump is projected to win Florida.

A City Unto Itself

Standing Rock

Tribal flags, horses, tents, hand-built shelters and teepees dominate one of the biggest, newest communities in North Dakota, built in a valley on federal land near the confluence of the Missouri and Cannonball rivers.

It's a semi-permanent, sprawling gathering with a new school for dozens of children and an increasingly organized system to deliver water and meals to the hundreds, sometimes thousands, of people from tribes across North America who've joined the Standing Rock Sioux in their legal fight against the Dakota Access oil pipeline to protect sacred sites and a river that's a source of water for millions of people.

"This is better than where most people came from," said 34-year-old Vandee Kahlsa, referencing the oft-harsh conditions of reservations across the United States. The Santa Fe, New Mexico, resident, who is Osage and Cherokee, has been at the camp for more than a month.

She joins Standing Rock Sioux members who have been here since April, people from other tribes and non-tribal members from as far away as Asia and Europe who've vowed to stay as long as it takes to block the four-state, $3.8 billion pipeline's construction. Though the Dallas-based pipeline company says it intends to finish the project, protesters have some hope: Three federal agencies are reviewing their construction-permitting process, temporarily blocking work on a small section not too far from the encampment site and asking Energy Transfer Partners to temporarily stop work on a 40-mile (64 km) span.

But given North Dakota's brutally cold winters, people will need more than the campfires warming them these days.

Bike Himalayas

'Kung Fu' Nuns

Clad in black sweatpants, red jackets and white helmets, the hundreds of cyclists pedaling the treacherously steep, narrow mountain passes to India from Nepal could be mistaken for a Himalayan version of the Tour de France.

The similarity, however, ends there. This journey is longer and tougher, the prize has no financial value or global recognition and the participants are not professional cyclists but Buddhist nuns from India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet.

Five hundred nuns from the Buddhist sect known as the Drukpa Order, on Saturday complete a 4,000-km (2,485 mile) bicycle trek from Nepal's Kathmandu to the northern city of Leh in India to raise awareness about human trafficking in the remote region.

"When we were doing relief work in Nepal after the earthquakes last year, we heard how girls from poor families were being sold because their parents could not afford to keep them anymore," 22-year-old nun Jigme Konchok Lhamo told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

"We wanted to do something to change this attitude that girls are less than boys and that it's okay to sell them," she said, adding that the bicycle trek shows "women have power and strength like men."

The New Californian Gold Rush


Two years ago, the city of Adelanto, a crumbling outpost in California's Mojave desert, was facing a bleak future as it teetered on the brink of bankruptcy and struggled with double-digit unemployment.

Today, however, the once-desolate town is firmly back on the map, having joined a handful of communities in California in embracing large-scale commercial cannabis cultivation -- a move that smells of success as the state prepares to vote in November on legalizing the use of recreational marijuana.

Though California already allows the use of medical marijuana, the initiative to fully legalize the drug -- seen as likely to succeed -- is expected to transform the most populous state in the US and one of the world's largest economies into a new epicenter for cannabis, bringing in billions in revenue.

According to the Arcview Group, a cannabis investment and research firm based in California, medical and recreational marijuana sales are expected to more than double to $6.5 billion in the Golden State by 2020 if the drug becomes fully legal after November.

Nationwide, the legal cannabis market -- which stood at about $5.7 billion in 2015 -- is projected to reach more than $23 billion by 2020, according to Arcview.

1970s Counterculture's Impact


Vermont in the 1970s was a hotbed for the counterculture, and the influx of young people had a lasting influence on the state's politics, agriculture and food and offbeat culture.

After two years of research, the Vermont Historical Society's exhibit "Freaks, Radicals & Hippies: Counterculture in the 1970s in Vermont" opens at the Vermont History Center in Barre on Sept. 24.

"We quickly realized it was more than just getting back to the land and living on a commune and having organic farming," said curator Jackie Calder.

Vermont's population, which had been relatively stagnant, jumped 14 percent in the 1960s and 15 percent in the 1970s, with more than half the increase in the latter decade from people moving in from out of state.

They were drawn to the state for its beauty, rural nature, relatively inexpensive land and farms, and its proximity to Boston and New York City and New Jersey.



Digby's Hullabaloo


Administrator Urges Archbishop's Removal


A Roman Catholic administrator is urging the Vatican to remove Guam's archbishop, who has refused to resign amid accusations of sexual abuse against altar boys.

The move comes after a letter delivered in July from leaders in the Archdiocese of Agana did not move Archbishop Anthony Apuron to leave his post.

Archbishop Savio Hon, a temporary apostolic administrator for Guam who was appointed by the Vatican after the allegations surfaced, also is urging parishioners to sign a petition upholding the statute of limitation on civil lawsuits for child sex abuse. He said the archdiocese "will be exposed to unlimited financial liability" forcing the sale of church property.

A bill that lifts the current statute of limitation passed the Guam Legislature and is expected to be delivered to the governor's desk on Sept. 21. The Guam church has not submitted any substitute bill for consideration.

Catholics make up about 80 percent of Guam's population. Apruon, 70, was appointed as archbishop in 1986 by then-Pope John Paul II and has been beset by recent allegations from former altar boys that he sexually abused them in the 1970's.

To Start Liquidation

ITT Educational Services

ITT Educational Services Inc filed for bankruptcy on Friday to liquidate its business after the U.S. government restricted financial aid to new students of the U.S. for-profit college operator.

The filing follows ITT's decision earlier this month to shut its 137 technical college campuses in 39 states, a move affecting about 35,000 students and 8,000 employees.

Reuters on Thursday reported ITT had hired restructuring consultants Alvarez & Marsal LLC and bankruptcy law firm Faegre Baker Daniels LLP to prepare the filing.

The U.S. Department of Education in August banned ITT from enrolling new students who receive federal aid, a critical source of revenue for the Carmel, Indiana-based company.

ITT had been under government scrutiny over allegations of fraud and deceptive marketing tactics amid a push by the U.S. government to enforce tighter rules on the for-profit education sector.

The most famous scientific hoaxes in history - Business Insider


Testimony From Probe Could Go Public


A Maryland historian is a step closer in his fight for the release of decades-old grand jury testimony involving a story the Chicago Tribune published during the World War II Battle of Midway, the newspaper reported.

The story, published June 7, 1942, said the U.S. Navy obtained advance knowledge of the Japanese fleet's plans. It included precise details such as the names of the Japanese vessels involved in the battle and details of their strategy. The story sparked outrage and a grand jury was impaneled to seek criminal charges against the journalists for violating espionage laws. No indictment was handed up and the testimony was sealed.

Historian and author Elliot Carlson is close to revealing that testimony, The Tribune reported ( ). The U.S. Justice Department has been fighting back, contending that court rules do not permit the release of confidential grand jury records simply because they are of historical interest. Doing so, it says, would undermine the principle of grand jury secrecy.

So far, the courts have sided with Carlson. A federal district judge in Chicago last year ruled in favor of the author, and on Thursday, a three-judge panel of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed that decision.

Carlson is writing a book about the Tribune story and its fallout, and he has spent four years trying to get the records.

Stone Age Mummy


When police heard about the frozen corpse up in the Alps in September 1991, they opened a criminal probe. Murder it was, but the crime was rather old -- and the ultimate cold case.

The dead man, found by hikers 25 years ago this week a snowball's throw from the Austrian-Italian border and put in a wooden coffin at a nearby police station, turned out to have died more than 5,000 years ago.

Mummified in the ice, "Oetzi", as he was later nicknamed, was a sensation, providing invaluable scientific insights that a quarter of a century later show no sign of abating.

To put it into perspective, when Oetzi died around 3,350-3,100 BC, Stonehenge in England and the first Egyptian pyramids were still hundreds of years from being built.

He lived during the Late Neolithic or Copper Age when mineral extraction and copper smelting, which spread to Europe from the Near East, was fundamentally transforming human society.

In Memory

Charmian Carr

Charmian Carr, the actress best known for sweetly portraying the eldest von Trapp daughter in Rogers & Hammerstein's "The Sound of Music," has died. She was 73.

Carr died Saturday of complications from a rare form of dementia in Los Angeles, Carr's spokesman, Harlan Boll, said.

At age 21, the actress portrayed Liesl von Trapp in the 1965 film version of the musical "The Sound of Music." She famously performed the song "Sixteen Going on Seventeen."

After "The Sound of Music," Carr's only other major Hollywood role was starring with Anthony Perkins in the Stephen Sondheim television musical "Evening Primrose." She played a mysterious young woman who lived in a department store.

The actress later wrote a pair of books about her "Sound of Music" experiences: "Forever Liesl" and "Letters to Liesl." She fully embraced audiences' reverence for the musical, frequently appearing at fan events commemorating the film, including sing-a-long performances at the Hollywood Bowl.

Carr went on to become an interior designer in Southern California. Her clients included Michael Jackson and "Sound of Music" screenwriter Ernest Lehman.

She was born in Chicago in 1942. Her mother was a vaudeville actress, and her father was a musician and orchestra leader. Her family moved to the San Fernando Valley when she was a child.

Carr is survived by her four siblings, her two children and four grandchildren. She is also survived by the six other actors who became part of cinematic history when they were cast as the von Trapp children.

In Memory

James Stacy

James Stacy, who played a gunslinging drifter on the television western "Lancer" and, after losing an arm and a leg in a 1973 motorcycle accident, turned in memorable performances in specialized roles, died on Sept. 9 in Ventura, Calif. He was 79.

The cause was anaphylactic shock after having received antibiotics, said his fiancée, Antigoni Tsamparlis.

Mr. Stacy had been working steadily on television in small roles, beginning in the late 1950s, when "Lancer" came his way. He was cast as the half-Mexican Johnny Madrid Lancer, one of two half brothers summoned by their estranged father to help defend the family ranch against a gang of marauders. The tension between Johnny and his half brother, Scott (Wayne Maunder), a genteel Bostonian, helped propel the plot.

Mr. Stacy lost his left arm and leg when his motorcycle was struck by a drunken driver in the Hollywood Hills. His passenger, Claire Cox, was killed. He returned to acting two years later, playing a newspaper editor in "Posse," a role that Kirk Douglas, the film's star, had ordered for him.

In 1977, Mr. Stacy earned an Emmy nomination for his performance as an embittered Vietnam veteran in the television movie "Just a Little Inconvenience."

In 1995, Mr. Stacy was arrested and charged with molesting the 11-year-old daughter of a friend, whom he had invited to his house in Ojai, Calif. Found guilty, he fled to Hawaii and attempted suicide by jumping off the Pali lookout, a cliff-top scenic area on Oahu. A ledge 45 feet below the top broke his fall.

He was returned to California and sentenced to six years in prison, which he served at the California Institution for Men at Chino. His lawyer told the court that Mr. Stacy's heavy drinking and the psychological effects of his accident accounted for his aberrant behavior.

James Stacy was born Maurice William Elias on Dec. 23, 1936, in Los Angeles. His father, Louie, who had been brought to the United States as an infant by his Lebanese parents, made his living as a bookmaker. His mother, Lois, was a waitress.

He set his sights on acting and, after making a Pepsi-Cola commercial in New York, he returned to Hollywood, where he landed the recurring role of Fred, Ricky Nelson's friend, on the sitcom "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet."

He made a steady living with guest appearances on an assortment of television series, including "The Donna Reed Show," "Gunsmoke," "Cheyenne," "Have Gun - Will Travel" and "Perry Mason."

While filming "Summer Magic" (1963), with Burl Ives and Hayley Mills, in Palm Springs, Calif., Mr. Stacy met and married the actress Connie Stevens, who was there to film "Palm Springs Weekend." The marriage ended in divorce, as did his second marriage, to the actress Kim Darby, whom he had met on the set of "Gunsmoke."

He is survived by a daughter from his marriage to Ms. Darby, Heather Elias; a sister, Carolyn Elias; and a brother, Louie.

In 1980, Mr. Stacy produced and acted in the NBC television movie "My Kidnapper, My Love," directed by Sam Wanamaker. Mr. Stacy played a disabled newsstand operator who is persuaded by his brother, a small-time criminal, to kidnap an emotionally disturbed girl for ransom.

In 1990, he had a recurring role on the series "Wiseguy."
